An hour long, fully resourced lesson with powerpoint, differentiated tasks throughout, worksheets, clip link and accompanying task all about The Crusades. Designed to meet Ofsted Good-Outstanding criteria by a experienced History teacher in a UK secondary school.
I used many of these resources namely the group activity for an observation that was deemed Outstanding. Focus is on history skills. Resources Includes 2 lessons worth of resources including lesson plan and group activity ideal for KS3, having said that much of the material is complex as I was hoping to push literacy with these resources.
With the new AQA Specification including Medieval History one might be able to use it for older students, likewise it could be easily adapted for an RE lesson on religious intolerance.
Be warned it will require ideally colour copying of resources and a fair amount of time cutting out cards. Lesson therefore requires some preparation time.
Set of 7 lessons on the Crusades. All activities are well-planned, with differentiation, and all resources are provided. Designed for Year 7 students.
Please see my other uploads for KS3 and KS4 resources.
In 1095, Pope Urban II launched the First Crusade, calling forth knights
and peasants from across Western Europe to march against Muslim
Turks in the Byzantine Empire and ultimately re-conquer the holy city
of Jerusalem. In this lesson, students compare Christian and Muslim
perspectives of the First Crusade by analyzing different accounts of the
siege of Jerusalem.
This lesson looks at the effects of the crusades.
It briefly covers the context of the crusades (what they were, when they took place, why they took place)
The lesson has a variety of activities and encourages the pupils to think of both positive and negative effects of the crusades on Christianity and Islam (in Europe and the Middle-East)
An excellent lesson.
This fun, interactive lesson covers the main weapons used by the Crusaders during the Middle Ages. This includes both siege weapons and soldiers. An initial thinking activity gets children of all abilities to engage with the difficulty of attacking fortifications such as castles and the activity is repeated as a plenary to show progress during the lesson.
